Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Editing/Select templates by categories

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Select templates by categories

  • Problem: When contributors try to add templates to a page in visual editor or wikitext editor, we have to remember the accurate full name or prefix of the template.
  • Who would benefit: Everyone who want to add templates but don't know the accurate templates names.
  • Proposed solution: In most of wikis, templates were classified into categories by purpose and functions. We can add a templates browser to visual editor and wikitext editor, allowing contributors to browse and select templates by categories.

Pinging discussants about wish selection and other updates

Hello everyone,

This is a ping to let you know that this wish and 3 other requests related to templates have been selected for development.

Secondly there are updates regarding the Wishlist Survey. A mockup of the new wish proposal form is available. There is also an update on changes coming to how participants vote.

Additionally, come let's explore this idea to group wishes into Focus Areas; a Focus Area may be adopted by various movement stakeholders for addressing. The first example is the Template Picker Improvements Project, which groups four related wishes about template improvements (e.g. adding infoboxes and bookmarking templates).
